On April 29, 2009, colleagues and students of charismatic scientist and educator Cecily Selby gathered at a symposium to honor her legacy by highlighting the important breakthroughs science educators have made --in school and out-of-school--and to celebrate their passion for the sciences and their successes in communicating that passion to others. These thoughtful leaders, many Steinhardt alumni, shared best practices in presenting science in artistic, technological, environmental, meteorological, community, and personal contexts. Their common objective: to open sci-tech literacy and access to jobs and careers in science to all. Read More
Sharing Our Success in Urban Science and Math Teaching
